Monday, February 25, 2019


Hello and welcome to Heart 2 Heart challenges for another great weekly challenge. This weeks challenge is C.A.S.E. which means Copy and Steal Everything! Now we paper crafters are not thieves so we wont be stealing anything from anyone because we all are just too nice(!), for that but we wont lie, we see a project we like and we tend to put our spin on it and make it our own and how could we not, there are so many talented artists out there to be inspired by. So this week....we will copy and put our spin on a project from the current Seasonal Expressions Idea Book. To view a copy of our idea book, please click on the following links: United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The idea books are all the same but the pricing will be reflective of the currency and exchange rates in each market.

And now onto the design team projects!

Please keep in mind that while we are all inspired by the immense talent out in the world, we want to be sure we are giving credit to the artists where ever possible and while we may not know the exact artist in the CTMH Idea Books, please be sure to note that your inspiration comes from the talented artists at CTMH in your online posts for this challenge. 

To join us, please click on the inlinkz button below to add your project. This final February project is live until March 2nd so please join us soon to be entered for this one!

I Heart Us

This week's challenge is all about "I heart Us!"  Now, this could be using the CTMH paper pack with the same name, or the photos that show how much love you have for those people in them, or any number of things.

To play along with us, just show us how you use the theme and use some CTMH product in your creation!

To give you some inspiration, let me show you some fun items that the design team has come up with.





Hopefully the great artwork above gives you some ideas on where to start! Each lady has some great information on her blog about her fun creation! Make sure to check them out, and feel free to leave them some love, too!

Use the link up below to share your artwork with us! You have until the end of the month to create something fun and share!

Favorite Recipe

Happy February!  Welcome to our first February Heart 2 Heart Challenge entitled, "Favorite Recipe." Do you have a food recipe, and related photo, you've been meaning to scrapbook? Perhaps it's a sketch recipe, of sorts. However you choose to interpret the theme is up to you but we do hope you'll do so and link up to this post, sharing your "Favorite Recipe" artwork. Be sure to incorporate some Close To My Heart products in your papercraft item.

For a little jumpstart on inspiration, here are some creative items provided by some of our Design Team Members. Be sure to visit their Blogs, provided through the links, so you can see their connection to the theme.

Join our creative fun and link up to this Heart 2 Heart Challenge! We look forward to seeing what you share!
